Old Photograph Of A Fisherman Fishing In The River Irvine Scotland

Old photograph of a fisherman fishing in the River Irvine on the Border of Ayrshire, Scotland. The River Irvine rises in two head waters, one in a moss at Meadow head, on the eastern boundary of the parish of Loudoun, and the other a mile eastward in the parish of Avondale in Lanarkshire, near the battlefield of Drumclog. Fishing is a very popular pursuit and many angling clubs maintain the river and its banks, monitor fish stocks, report on pollution and carry out conservation measures. The river contains, amongst others, brown trout, sea trout, salmon, eels, minnows, and sticklebacks.
